The picture to the left shows what bowing walls look like. Basement walls may fail from the pressure of the soil around it. The structure is designed to withstand a certain amount of pressure. Once this is reached and exceeded, the lateral pressure can make all types of foundations including block or concrete foundations bow or lean. Sometimes there is water standing in the yard and there is no drainage. This is one of the leading causes of bowing basement walls. As walls start to lean and crack this makes your home very unsafe and could potentially allow water to seep into the basement or crawlspace.
